Mothercare All We Know Baby Lotion

About Mothercare brand:

As I am very impressed by this brand, first I would like to talk about them. As some of us know that Mothercare is a part of Shoppersstop (which is my all time shopping store) and it’s a leading brand in UK. Shoppers Stop has an exclusive franchise agreement in India with Mothercare, for shop in shops in department store format. Its a largest retailer in Infant and Toddler. They have 31 Mothercare store across 12 cities in India, including Mumbai (5), Pune (2), Hyderabad (4), Bangalore (4), Chennai (2),Delhi & NCR (5) and Kolkata(1) amongst others.

Mothercare stocks a variety of products for mothers and their babies, toddlers and children till eight years of age the focus being on style, function and safety.

Renowned for its uniformly high standards of quality worldwide, Mothercare also offers a wide range of the safest and the most comfortable, yet trendy maternity products. Its products for would-be moms include maternity nightwear, pregnancy and labour essentials, literature and even swimwear.

For new mothers, the products have been divided into four categories – newborns 0-3 months, infants 3-18 months, toddlers 18-36 months and kids 3-8 years. There are pushchairs, car seats and travel equipment, nursery furniture, cots & cribs, you name it.

Here, one can also find bedding, mattresses, highchairs, clothing & shoes, bathing & changing products, child safety products and not to mention, books & toys too. In fact, one can safely assume that there is no baby care and maternity product that you will not find in here.

Ok, now enough of the history. Lets get into the details of the product.

What I think of Mothercare All We Know Baby Lotion

This is the second bottle of Mothercare baby lotion that am using for my one and half year old son and its really good. Previously I was using all Johnson’s baby care products for him. My husband went to Mothercare store to get a “Baby on board” sign and thats when where he saw this pack. As the sames person suggested that its much more better than leading brands. So he though we can give it a try since we are very impresed by other products of MOTHERCARE like baby clothes, diaper bag and all other stuff.

I like the smell of the lotion and once its applied on my on’s skin, its stays for long time and it’s not at all greasy. I also tried Johnson’s baby lotion too but its too mild that it stays only for few hours, so I guess Johnson’s baby lotion can be used for new born babies. Thats what I did.

Product claims:
All Mothercare specialist know-how it goes into our All-we-know-Baby lotion. The non-greasy formulation gently protects and moisturises your baby’s delicate skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It contains olive oil, nature’s ultimate moisturiser and soothing chamomile.

Developed with the MOTHERCARE panel of Midwives.

Hypo-allergenic- unlikely to cause allergic reactions.

Dermatologically tested – kind to the skin.

Suitable from birth.

Ingredients:
Aqua(water), paraffinum liquidum, petrolatum, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, polysorbate 60, PEG-100 stearate, dimethicone, parfum(fragrance), methylparaben, imidazolidinyl urea, Disodium EDTA, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, propylparaben, Acrylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, xanthan gum, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, anthemis nobilis (chamomile) floer water, sodium hydroxide, phenoxyethanol, ethylparaben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben, CI 17200(red 33), CI 19140(yellow 5).

It does has parabens but girls if they have to preserve the cosmetics from fungus then obviously they have to add parabens.

Pros of Mothercare All We Know Baby Lotion

  • I like the smell. After applyting the lotion to my son, he smells really good. Its like using fragrance and yeah its not strong smell either.
  • As the product claims, its non-greasy
  • Definetely suits kids
  • And it belongs to one my favourite brands

Cons of Mothercare All We Know Baby Lotion

  • You cant get there product from any medical stores. You need to locate either a separate MOTHERCARE store like me or locate shoppersstop.
  • All I can see is a manufactured date or imported date. It doesnt have expiry date. Iam a person who always checks expiry dates on each and every products that I buy, not just beauty products even groceries too. So thats a big concern for me.

Price: Rs.249 for 300ml bottle

The lotion is actually very light pink in bottle but when you pour it on the hand, it looks almost white in colour.

Rating: 4.5/5

awww! the brand itself sounds so cute and thoughtful. I think clothing becomes quite a issue with would be mothers or new mothers. This brand does offer some relief. you ahve purchased some clothing from them?

Gaea August 29, 2011 at 5:09 pm

he he yes quite some relief but at a v pretty price tag too :D
since i couldnt locate mom n me easily here, i headed to mothercare for pram and some stuff. and since i havent lost my preg wt but not as huge i checked the clothing. a night suit (pjs and sweat shirt) was some 2.4k or some. bahh! just for some sweat pants at 50% off which was 750 :D [THEN i realised i could just grab some dhoti pants, harems and parallels from corner shops for 300 a piece :p]

but during preg, since i had to wear decent stuff everyday to work that’s last all the months, i got all my maternity clothing from mom n me (mahindra retailers and import motherhood brand i think from usa and also have their own line where they have indian too) – comparable in prices though :)

AND GALS – sincere advise here from exp, when u r buying ur maternity clothing (top/kurta), buy them with nursing provision. i hadnt thought wise, and neither did the sales gals tell me (y would they!) cos if mat line is 1500 a piece of top, nursing tops are some 1800 or more a piece in these shops! and i have found it hard to find local made ones. though u may not need like 10, u do need 3 or 4 to go out with.

thanks for the review Krupa!
so far i am liking the mothercare wipes for my baby (got 5 for price of 3) – esp the fact that it is frag free! am not really sure i’d keep buying those. there are other brands which are safe too and less pricey.

although some may be surprised to know peds actually advise “no indian johnsons baby prods” for the baby since lot of babies get allergic to it – seems it has pet jelly?! am confused! so i might as well try this range apart from himalaya and wipro baby soft.

i so hear u about parabens! such a debated little ingredient there :) i cant make up mind abt it actually but slowly trying to fade it away in my head just for convenience!

I love each and every product of mothercare for my little princess. :teddy: :teddy: .. They are a bit pricey.. but worth the money. Those little frocks are really pretty.. :woot: .. bit expensive.. but even if you wash them everyday.. you can’t even tell if they are new or some one year old.. the quality is really awesome.. i love their shoes, socks, those cute body suits and sleeping suits.. And mommies you should also try their Natural softie range.. they are super awesome..
